Summer may be over but not for the hard working crews of the HIPPO fleet. A concentrated effort in the early weeks of Fall have yielded an abundant harvest of the invasive milfoil plant. In an area close to Shelldrake Point, on the lower lake, the team removed over 70 bags in one day! Other days they pulled 40 plus bags. While this is not good news in that the milfoil is there, it indicates progress in our battle to control the growth and spread of this potentially lake choking invader. These efforts are not without costs and your membership and donations in support are appreciated.
